ESSENCE OF HOME
April 24, 2022 | 7:00 pm | Music Hall
Whether it’s an ode to one’s country, an exploration of home culture, or simply a nostalgia about a home you’ve never been to, the Philharmonic looks at the meaning of home.
ZHOU TIAN: Rise
SAMUEL COLERIDGE-TAYLOR: Rhapsodic Dance for Orchestra Op. 75
BEDŘICH SMETANA: Vltava
FRANZ LISZT: Les Préludes
Coleridge-Taylor’s fantasy on African culture inspired by a dance is the strong concert opener and sets the theme for the rest of the concert: the idea of home, whether it’s Smetana’s ode to his country, Liszt’s exploration of his home culture, or it’s simply a nostalgic fernweh about a home you’ve never been to, as was the case of Coleridge-Taylor’s.
